Who should NOT buy the shoe

Given that it is an outdated iteration of the Curries, you might as well want to consider the newer and improved versions, such as the Curry 9 or the Curry 10.

Supreme UA traction

Similar to the ClutchFit Drive, the Under Armour Icon Curry One has a multidirectional traction pattern that delivers superior on-court control and court feel.

The playtesters gave a thumbs-up to the shoe's solid bite on both indoor and outdoor courts. However, it does require wiping when dust builds up.

Charged Cushioning of the Curry One

A layer of Charged Cushioning foam sits on top of the Micro G cushioning, and experts noticed how it feels soft when you're standing or walking but activates the moment you start to run or jump. It firms up when you need it to.

Comfy, secure lockdown

The reviewers took note of how locked in they felt with the shoe's heel counter, reporting no complaints about heel slippage. The lacing system also contributes to the shie's secure fit.

Meanwhile, the Anafoam upper makes sure that the foot is not only held securely but comfortably too. As one of the players points out, it offers "one-to-one movement between your feet and the shoe."

The upper could be airier

Ventilation appears to be lacking in the UA Curry 1. The reviewers feel that it's the foamy layer that causes the problem. "Not as much airflow as I would expect from such a setup," says one of them.

Under Armour Curry 1 is a well-made shoe

The Under Armour Icon Curry One has a performance foam upper that delivers lightweight support. It also has a padded mesh tongue that offers breathability and added protection.

The UA Icon style

Icon is Under Armour’s first-ever customization platform. It is the company’s answer to MiAdidas and NikeID. It stands out from these programs because it gives buyers the ability to upload images to be printed on the shoe.

Besides uploading photos and choosing colors, users can also select from a variety of pre-loaded patterns and limited-edition prints that are fully customizable. Test your creativity and stand out from the rest with the Under Armour Icon Curry One.
